How to Keep Up With Your Kids This Summer
By Sandy Schroeder
Most parents have developed good strategies for handling kids, budgets and family crises. But sometimes a little more help is needed.
- If summer boredom is already settling in
- If junk food and video games are daily events
- If you desperately need a timeout
- If fall can’t come soon enough
Those are all signs of summer burnout that cry for help. The Joint Chiropractic clinic near you could help you and your family survive the summer. Stop in and find out what an entirely different wellness center can do.
When you come in, bring your kids, and get to know your chiropractor. As you talk about the issues, your chiropractor can help you pull everything together.
How Your Chiropractor Helps
Your chiropractor uses gentle targeted spinal adjustments to seek pain relief and an overall wellness that may make a difference for your family.
Results are unique to the individual. But you may find that everybody in the family does better when they have more energy, less stress, and more alertness. When the body’s brain-to-body connections are in good shape, everything gets better. Everybody may sleep better, too.
You may find weekly 15-minute adjustments work for the whole family, keeping all of you at your peak.
Feeling better from weekly adjustments, you might develop some new family schedules.
Start a tradition of summer suppers – Let the kids help cook and invite friends.
Figure out movie nights – Everybody gets a choice. Pick the best of science fiction, adventure and comedy and let everybody stay up late.
Do a mini-campout – If you have a favorite local park you could pack a cooler and do a one night campout. If that works you can move on to bigger camping efforts.
Check out community classes – This may be the time to learn watercolors, sculpting, or weaving.
Spend time reading – Lazy afternoons lend themselves to summer reading. Visit your library or favorite bookstore and let everybody pick a few.
Redecorate – Start with the family room and move on to the kids’ room. Kids can help with the cleanup and small painting projects. Take the time to put everybody’s ideas into play.
